For All Things Mojo

Posted on

Dang, I know I’ve used these colors before AND for a Mojo Monday but Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate are just SUCH a beautiful color combination. Here is my card for today’s Mojo Monday Challenge!

And this was today’s Mojo Monday Sketch. As you can see, I chose to go portrait instead of horizontal and I just wasn’t “feelin’ ” it with the horizontal, lol! 🙂

Plus it looks as if I’ve shot myself in the foot as I had this set, For All Things Stamp Set, out on my desk as I need to design a Make and Take for an upcoming workshop. In retrospect perhaps I should have saved this card for that and made something else for today. Oh well!

This set always scares me for just the briefest of moments as I tend to forget the stamps have a very “linen” look about them. This gives a great effect which is particularly good for creating backgrounds as I did with the leaf, stamping in Smoky Slate Classic Ink onto Smoky Slate Cardstock.

The stamping under my leaves was one of those wonderful freakish things I hadn’t planned but worked to my advantage. Either I hadn’t cleaned, or hadn’t cleaned very well, this stamp from the last time I used it causing some of the Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink to blend with my Smoky Slate Classic Ink. Combined with the linen look of the stamp I’d say whatever happened, happened VERY well!

Happy Umpteenth Mojo!

Wednesday, Monday, it’s all the same, it’s a day! So here I am, on a Wednesday, making my Monday card and posting it as if it’s Monday just to keep the routine, lol!

Here’s the card I’ve created for this week’s Mojo Monday Challenge.

Mojo359 - Happy Umpteenth Mojo - JIFThis is the Mojo Monday sketch if you haven’t already seen it.

Mojo 359 Sketch

On printing this sketch this morning I wasn’t anticipating any delays as lots of ideas were whirling around in my mind. Unfortunately the one thing NOT whirling around was the background that was going to be my starting point.

Three hours and three different backgrounds later I was finally underway with a pattern from the Park Lane DSP with the smallest border of Meadow Moss Cardstock. Onto this a pattern from the Moonlight DSP Stack. Onto that a small piece of Meadow Moss Cardstock which I stamped in Meadow Moss Classic Ink with a stamp from the Work of Art Stamp Set which I now wish I’d sponged.

The sentiment came from the Oh My Goodies Stamp Set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink then die-cut with the Deco Label Collection. I cut another framelit in the larger size in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock for underneath. A small banner in Hello Honey Cardstock, lightly sponged in Hello Honey Classic Ink was also added. Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss was the final touch for this area.

To the top right-hand corner three Basic Rhinestones Jewels were added. These I colored with the darkest Old Olive Blendabilities.

Blackberry Bliss Mojo!

Posted on

My goodness, here it is only Tuesday morning and I’m already posting my Mojo Monday. Perhaps I’m finally in tune with this summer vacation now that it’s coming to an end, lol! Here is my card.

Mojo358 - Blackberry Bliss - JIF

And here is this week’s sketch.

Mojo358SketchAs it happened, this DSP from the Park Lane Series was sitting on my desk yesterday. It was intended for a scrapbook page but never used. As I put the DSP away I looked again at the pattern and this card all but made itself.

There’s the smallest of borders in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock behind the DSP and another strip of it just below the center of the card. Instead of using scallops behind this strip I used the cardstock “off-cuts”, the negative pieces, after creating the scallop border.

Onto the Smoky Slate Cardstock I stamped in Smoky Slate Classic Ink a stamp from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set. The sentiment inside the On-Film Framelits die-cut in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock is from the Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set.
